A good standard of service and food at a fair price. Easy to get to. Good selection of alcoholic drinks and not too expensive. Would certainly go back

Chose this place rather than the branded places opposite. Good choice. Ribs and chicken really good. Smiling attentive waitress and music at acceptable volume. Everything clean and reasonable prices for the location. Visited whilst waiting for the ferry. Wide menu
